Hilti at a Glance

The company building a better future.

hilti corporate history

We believe that with the right tools, you can build a better future. That’s why our products, systems and services are all built with the construction professional in mind. Our goal is to make your job easier, safer and more productive—whatever your project and wherever you are. 

Family Owned

Hilti was founded in 1941 as a family-owned company. And we still are. The Martin Hilti Family Trust holds all shares and participation certificates of the Hilti Corporation. That means Martin Hilti’s vision for the company is protected today and preserved for tomorrow.

Truly global

The group is headquartered in Schaan, Liechtenstein. But our reach extends worldwide. While the Hilti team includes nearly 27,000 members in more than 120 countries, we share a common culture built on a foundation of teamwork, integrity, courage and commitment. 

Distinctly different

Hilti is far more than a manufacturer of tools and equipment. For the people we serve every day, we’re partners. No other company offers as much in the way of service, education, training, technical data and support. In fact, more than two-thirds of our team members work directly with customers on a daily basis. That means about 200,000 customer contacts day in and day out. Those real-world interactions inspire us to develop better tools, better systems—and better solutions. 

Future focused

We’re committed to building value for stakeholders both inside and outside the organization. That means we consider the interests of customers, suppliers, team members—and society as a whole—in everything we do. We take social and ecological responsibility seriously, because we believe it sets a precedent for long-term success.
